NEVER say this! Please.

Did you hear of new interesting laws making their way into Switzerland's legislation, giving intelligence agencies quite extensive possibilities to monitor people's telecommunciation there? As soon as I find the article I will post it here. Not an (April Fools') joke, by the way.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

No, Posteo is not an option for me.

What's bad about it? And most important: Why does it make Posteo bad?

That's why I asked - what's bad about anthroposophy? It's not a sect, it's a philosophy.

the anonymous benefits posteo offer would be undermined associating it with your own domain. I am not aware of any domain registrar which will allow completely anonymous registration, although you can hide behind a whois privacy protector, the registrars can be legally bound to give up your details should they be asked with suitable legal paperwork. The main benefit of posteo is you can be *completely* anonymous. If this is less important to you, theres tons of equally solid providers out there you can attach to your own domain.

Everyone who would want to use their own domain is aware of that. Privacy is not binary, it's a spectrum. Sure they could be legally bound to give up my information, but that doesn't mean that I will have 0 privacy if I use my own domain. Nowadays everyone buys stuff from the internet and you need your address to do that. So ya, it's pretty straightforward to tie an e-mail to a particular person. Hell, you can tie an email to a person just by the connection information, such as IP address and such. I doubt most people who use posteo.de connect via VPN/TOR.

 

Also, they accept paypal and bank transfer for fuck sake. They're not being consistent now, are they? If the reason for not supporting the use of domains is privacy reasons, then they should not accept paypal/bank transfers as well.

 

Someone using posteo AND their own domain would still be better than using something else, privacy wise.

At one point I was looking into buying a WEDG for email (own server). Info here:

I would only buy something like this after it had been released (user feedback) and if it was 100% open source (which it is not).

I don't agree with you; think, and especially read, again. They focus on data economy. Not anonymity.

valuable tool there.  I use the addon for firefox called SSleuth.  https://github.com/sibiantony/ssleuth/

 

I am wondering how SSL Labs is getting their data for gmail.  When I visit gmail site SSleuth reports

    HMAC: SHA-256.

which seems to contradict.  I wonder why the discrepancy?

I'd like to add https://uberspace.de to the list. It's far more than just an e-mail hosting service. I use it for more than a year now and am completely satisfied. Unfortunately for most, they offer their services in German only. (Even if they reply to English Twitter messages in English.)

 

I is pay what you want (at least 1€) and you have 10GB of storage. Plus: You can use your own domain.

If you can use your own domain, they have to save personal data. It's german law.
